Burnaby, BC – February 8, 2022 – Today, Hemmera, an Ausenco company has been recognized with the prestigious BC’s Top 100 Employers award by Mediacorp Canada Inc. for the seventh year in a row. This honour identifies top employers that go above and beyond to create exceptional workplaces for their employees. “Each year, the competition is intense, and this year-over-year recognition is a testament to the people who work at Hemmera and the culture we create together,” says Kate Witte, Vice President of Hemmera.
We aim to create an inclusive work environment where employees feel engaged and valued as individuals. In line with our unique culture, we live our collective values of being people-based, business-focused, and values driven while delivering performance excellence to clients and projects. Hemmera’s focus on creating an accountable, responsive, and inclusive culture gives employees the opportunity to work in a dynamic and collaborative work environment.
“Our people play a central role in responding to the ever-evolving environmental challenges our clients are facing,” says Kate Witte. “I have seen the power of our organization as we continually work to support each other during the pandemic while driving business opportunities forward. We are proud of our talented and resilient team and proud to have dedicated employees in BC and across Canada.”
Our team has navigated the business through the complexities of COVID-19 and a demanding workforce climate. “It’s been a challenging year but also a tremendous one for our organization. We’ve focused a lot on engagement and culture, while also making sure each employee is effectively balancing their work and personal lives through flexible hours, personal days, and high starting vacation allowances. These are benefits we have always been proud of, but ones that have become incredibly important to the team as we navigate the pandemic together,” says Kate Witte.
Organized by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers, this annual high-profile competition recognizes employers across the province that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work, attracting, and retaining employees. Employers are evaluated using eight criteria: Physical Workplace; Work Atmosphere and Social; Health, Financial, and Family Benefits; Vacation and Time Off; Employee Communications; Performance Management; Training and Skills Development; and Community Involvement. Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which ones offer the most progressive and forward-thinking programs. Some of the reasons we were acknowledged as a Top Employer in BC include:
- Ongoing learning and development opportunities, internally and externally
- Quarterly employee award
- Flexible work environment
- Generous vacation and time-off policies
- High number of social (virtual and in-person) events throughout the year
This special designation affirms the hard work and dedication that have enabled our team to achieve this level of excellence year after year.
